In the groove now, editing Dealer No. 1.
Scratching through every printed-out page and tweaking or deleting words, sentences, paragraphs.
In On Writing – the best book on writing available in my opinion, Stephen King says he edits out about 15% of the original text. The way I write, I don’t lose so much, sometimes I end up with more, it’s just different to the original. And I play with structure a lot, switching things around until it makes sense.
I’m very happy with this morning’s work. Whether or not the book will be any good is another thing entirely, but I’m quietly hopeful.
